We were getting squeezed regardless. This just adds more density. I love it. Bring on the volume!Uh oh, so the FXG subcontractors are getting squeezed for more production at less pay?
Some of them better call back those seasonal drivers! We're already stretched thin... at this location.
& I heard more of the FXG drivers from my old terminal have moved on in the past month... plus we don't have that crummy DRO program yet to awaken more drivers to jump ship
I’m sure people will be “displaced”.So is one prediction behind this that the number of P1s will increase? If not, won’t lots of Express drivers face the prospect of working fewer hours a week? I can’t imagine that this wasn’t part of the plan. Still a no layoff policy. But if we starve enough of them, they’ll quit.
I said this to my manager straight faced (all the rumors of ground taking Express) and I was lied to straight faced.
I’ve been hiring just about anyone who expressed interest. Way over staffed. Or so I thought. Guess not.I just saw a manager on the FB group say he wasn't notified of the change until 1100 on Friday.
We just gained a slew of new hires, I feel especially bad for them. Surprised they didn't do a hiring freeze while they were set to make this drastic change.

Supposedly the first Phase will only include freight originating out of Greensboro, NC. But if it shows an increase in profits, I could see them ramping it up pretty quickly.We'll be greatly overstaffed when this hits my station.
On the Ground side, I'm wondering how many more drivers the contractor in the area is going to have to hire? Also how many more trucks to purchase?
I'd say 50% of my truck's volume (I drive an 650) is resi P2. That's generally another 60 pieces/stops for Ground to absorb.
